The Memories of Muizenberg Exhibition that smashed attendance records
in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Israel will be put on in London. In a
move that destined to delight ex-Muizenbergers and other members of
the South African Jewish diaspora in Britain, the London Jewish
Cultural Centre at Ivy House, once home of the famous ballerina, Anna
Pavlova, is hosting the exhibition.
Memories of Muizenberg will be opened by Sir Jeremy Isaacs (legendary
TV producer responsible for creating the prize-winning "The World At
War" series) and introduced by Muizenberg-born Leonard Weinreich, on
May 21. Using personal photos and reminiscences, all focussed
on Muizenberg's Jewish community and the visitors who descended during
"The Season", carefully selected by Joy Kropman and her team, the
exhibition celebrates the period between 1900 and 1965 as "the brief
summer of South African Jewry".
If you, or anyone in the vicinity of London, wants further
information, e.g. about associated lectures, opening times etc, please
